I am so happy to share the six month anniversary of mystyleloft.com with you all. Mystyleloft.com is a way for me to share my creative writing, photography, fashion styling, food adventures with some recipes thrown in every so often, travel adventures, and photos from the weddings I assist Floral Accents with. I have enjoyed so much sharing all of these things with my wonderful readers and followers and look forward to sharing more of what I am passionate about in the future on mystyleloft.com.
It is amazing how much beauty truly is around us, and it is the beauty in the world in which we all need to be reminded of sometimes, that is the constant source of inspiration behind the photos I enjoy taking, and also the way I invision style by finding ways to incorporate the beauty I see around me into a fashion sense. After all, life and fashion always have a place to connect when talking about style.
One of my favorite color combinations to wear is blue and coral or pink. The reason being, is it reminds me of a floral lined coastline with the sparkling blue ocean in the background. After all, style is not just about the clothes, it is the inspiration behind the designs, the passion, the culture, a way of showing our personality, creating beauty, and giving us a sense of what makes us feel the way we do when sharing our personal style.
Six months ago when I was trying to figure out what to name my blog, I was trying to think of a name that described all of the things I mentioned above. I wanted my name to reflect the way I feel about style, and how it is more a lifestyle than the just the clothes we wear. I was thinking about when I first moved to New York City for the first time and I was searching for apartments with my mom. This specific one we went into, was near Union Square in the city and we were warmly greeted by the owner, who was a very kind older woman who showed us a bright and very spacious loft with white walls and tons of windows. It was exactly what I pictured a New York City loft to look like. The great thing about this apartment is that this woman was an artist, so not only were the walls clean and pretty with tons of exposed light, but there were beautiful paintings on the walls and green plants all over. Plants I feel add so much to a space, adding the element of freshness and color.
I will always have this clear image in my mind of this apartment that my mom and I went to visit, because it was so beautiful to me and somewhat like a serene indoor oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. For some reason this image kept coming into my mind when I was trying to think of a name for my blog and mystyleloft hit me, because I had this image in my mind of all the things that inspire me in one dream loft. Mystyleloft.com is kind of like the loft, in the fact that I’m sharing all the things that inspire me in one place.
Funny thing is, I actually ended up in an amazing, but completely opposite of serene apartment in Times Square on 47th st between 8th and 9th avenue above a brazilian restaraunt with a serenading doorman. Now this apartment was a great size for New York, but I shared it with two other roommates, so it was definitely not luxury living by any means, in fact it was complete chaos, but it was exactly what I wanted for my adventure so it was perfect.
I can’t wait to share more inspiration with you all, and thank you for following.
